    I'm still loving the Ultra Classic, or "Ruby Lee" as she has been named by the girlfriend. I got one good ride in (200 miles) before the rear tire was bald. So I researched tires. Then I remembered how I took the rim off and to a shop to replace a tube on the Red Sporty. That cost me $112. I hate cleaning spokes. I also hate paying that much money. So I saved up, collected coupons, and bought a Harbor freight tire changer with the motorcycle tire changer for less than $75 out the door. Then I bought some dyna beads and a tire. Then all my constant perusing of Ebay and Craigslist paid off, and I found a set of black wagon spoke wheels in Lexington, SC for $150. When I got there and hung out with the guy for a minute or two, he refused to take more than $100! Score! Guess what? 1" wheel bearings and Ruby has 3/4". So now I own a specialty wheel bearing remover and installer. It took a damn month or more, but I eventually got it all put back together and it looks good, and I love it more after bonding a little. LOL

    The next few things on my agenda for Ruby are for this colder weather. I need to pop the seat and side cover and wire up for my heated jacket. Then I need to install lower fairings. Okay, I need to acquire and install lower fairings on the crash bars. The used ones are selling for more than I can stand, and they aren't even vented. Looking for cheaper alternatives. But not the leather covers.

    Great update Flame - I saw your response in another post and was wondering how you and the new bike were getting along. And viola, here is this update, and the fact she has a name now makes her an important part of the family! Dang, if I lived closer I'd rent your tire changer and throw a tip your way to watch over me while I change my tires next time. (so cool of the guy to feel your heart and make you a deal!)


    Can't help you out on the lowers, only ones I'm familiar with are the hard ones and the leather ones, although if you can score some leather ones cheap just to get you through this winter, then maybe that would buy you some time to search for a set of hard ones.

    I tink I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger on some cheapo's I found on Ebay. I'll have to buy the mounting hardware separately, but at $55 plus $18 hardware, it's still cheaper than $200 used ones on Ebay

    Well,... I ran across a Ebay auction that said "or best offer" , so I offered $45. They accepted. Free shipping. From California. Soooo, to be continued......
